MCAT Basics: Fluids

This MCAT podcast covers fluid statics (fluids standing still). First, I talk about different fluid properties including surface tension, vapor pressure, adsorption and absorption, adhesion and cohesion, and Henry’s law. Second, I discuss a few important fluids statics concepts: static fluid pressure, Pascal’s law, gauge pressure vs absolute pressure, osmotic pressure, and buoyancy.

For some fluid dynamics (moving fluids) skip to the 43:00 mark in the cardiovascular system + fluids podcast.

Thanks for listening!
